She is always receiving letters and visits from service- men like you, Bud. Teaching mathematics may be her vocation, but lending a helping hand is her avocation ....

As if building a championship basketball team isn't enough of a job for one man, COACH GERALD PHILLIPS also directs the entire ath- letic program and builds high our school morale, "Build your bodies as well as your minds!" is Mr. Phillips' motto as he puts future servicemen through rigorous schedules .... Sponsoring CAA and cheerleading in addition to conduct- ing gym and swimming classes are the duties of MISS RUTH SIMMS, physical education in- structor. Reading and chocolate pie are her favorites, while her theme song seems to be "Oh, Ilow I Hate to Get Up in the Morning!" . . . .

This collegiate looking member of the physical education de- partment left GHS at the end of the first semester to join her husband, who is in the Army .... The "power behind the throne" of our football eleven this year was MR. C. C. VAN IDYKE, our new athletic coach.

Miss Ryin helps plan the impressive GSL induction assem- bly every year ....

Problems of makeup, scenery, and costumes combine with her class work in speech to make her school program a full one. Miss Freeman lilled the vacancy in the dramatics department made when Mr. Allen was inducted into the Army .... " 'Andy, is this costume all right?" Familiar words for MISS HAZEL ANDERSON, adviser of the costume crew as well as our English "prof" who specializes in teaching reading. The National Honor Society is another of the many activities that come under her sponsorship. Rachel Anderson, AB. Fern Aspelin, lVl.A.
